This Charming Swedish Sweets Spot in the Village Has Every Kind of Candy You Could Desire
Are you a fan of rambo twists? Or apple wrenches? These are just some of the Swedish candies you can get by the pound at Sockerbit, a Swedish candy store in the West Village. Walk through this charming space with its white walls, perfectly placed pops of color, and giant bins of candy. Fill your bag with a selection of licorices, sour gummies, and sweet chewy candies, or you can shop some of the Swedish products and gifts in the back, including stuffed animals and party supplies. It's a cheery slice of heaven that will be sure to put a smile on your face.
Don't fill up on candy, though, since your next stop will be Voula, an authentic Greek restaurant nearby. Enjoy a beautiful meal in the inviting dining room, with its warm lighting and eclectic portraits hung over the tables. Split some mezedes, or small plates, like homemade stuffed grape leaves or grilled octopus. Or, if you're feeling greedy, have paradosiaka, or traditional plates, including braised lamb and orzo stew or moussaka. Their ingredients are locally sourced and imported from Greece, so you know the quality is exceptional. They also have a selection of cocktails and Greek spirits that are sure to fill you with kefi.
